This is super fun and easy! These are like a junk journal, only you are going to use a composition notebook as the journal. You'll junk it up as much as you can. Add tuck spots, envelopes, flips and flaps, glue things to the pages, staple things, paint on the pages, stamp, stencil, anything goes.

Please do something on each page. It can be as simple as a strip of washi or a stamp. Make sure to leave room in the journal for your partner to write and add their own junk--to actually use it!

Get carried away! Make it chunky! If it's super chunky, you can make a closure for it, but it's not required. Also, you can decorate/collage/paint/alter the covers if you'd like, but that's not required either. I recommend looking at your partner's profile if you choose to decorate the cover to see how they might like it.

Rating of 4.9 and no flakers!

This sounds like a really super fun swap, but the send by date is too short for me, hope you run it again with longer time to do it.

I agree with thequilterslink. if you add more time to the due date I would join. It sounds like a very fun swap. But to really have fun in making this I would need at least a month to be able to make it something special.

and international, though impractical i guess, would be nice...

I agree...do this with a month or more and I'd join, too!

Not a problem at all! I'm glad you all said something! :) I made it a month out.

Man, if I wasn't in the process of moving, I would join! Hopefully, you'll do this again sometime!

Just a couple more questions......Do we cover all the pages? Can we glue some of the pages together if needed? Basically can we treat this journal like it was one for us and do anything we want in it? Also are we leaving space for our partners to add stuff to the pages we do or giving them a completed book?

You'll junk it up as much as you'd like and however you'd like, but the person you're sending it to may want to use it as a journal, so leave room to write and maybe room for them to add their own stuff.

Please let me know if you do another one doing one something like it & maybe to much to do at one time.
